The only multi-colored button-down shirts I own are ones that women bought for me to wear. And I only wear those to work, tucked into neutral colored slacks, collar open, no tie. If I'm going out, I avoid the kind of suckholes that actually enforce a bro dress code and just go to a friendly bar where my black v-neck t-shirt, boot-cut jeans and Doc Martin steeltoes are welcome. I will be wearing a nice suit to my firm's holiday party this year, but only because it's apparently going to be at a snazzy restaurant instead of a rented room somewhere. The shirt I'll be wearing with it will be a bright, happy, solid color with no tie because it's not a damn conference.

Let's just admit that this article is as stupid as that "10 things bachelors should stop doing" article from a few days ago.

Bslim: Why would men follow any advice given by any publication run by and marketed to homosexuals.


Because they dress better than you?

Robo Beat: I generally end up going out in whatever I happened to wear to the office that day, which for all practical purposes means a tailored suit, a fitted shirt with the top button undone and the tie loosened, and perhaps the collars rolled up if I happen to take my suit jacket off.

I think a lot of people here missing the point of the article... If you have an obvious, 'going-out' shirt, it lessens your credibility that you have a nice wardrobe at home... Basically, one should try and look nice all the time wearing any assortment of your clothes combinations....

i agree, that you can tell if someone is wearing their one nice shirt... its like their uniform....

Maybe this says more about me than every one else....

I've never read GQ, I have no friends who have ever read GQ, I have no family who has ever read GQ, I've never met anyone that mentioned reading/subscribing to GQ...

Who the hell is buying this magazine in this country?

It's either a shirt and tie or something like this.  Took a visit back to NJ a few weeks ago and I had forgotten how much the collared shirt was still in style.  Blech.

I guess I either dress like an adult or a 17 year old.  I'm OK with that.

I have it on good authority from my fiancee that I should do the opposite of anything GQ says. Considering how great my love-life is, I can say it's a good strategy.

/It could also be the whole "madly in love" thing, too, I suppose.

So, it's not a brilliantly written article, but don't pretend you don't have some indication of what they're talking about. The dressed up but down uniform in Chicago, in the northeast, and in California is what they have pictured. Untucked, sleeves carefully rolled, and just cheeky enough to say "I'm clever and edgy" in Comic Sans...

I still see this in all of these regions. That said, it is a versatile way to dress, and I don't see what the issue is. It's not how I typically dress, but it *does* work well for many women, and it requires very little thought. Some people can't swing a faux professor outfit followed by a grey Hugo Boss 4-course gastropub suit offset by a 4% silk pink shirt and typewriter cufflinks.

Maybe bros have figured out something style gurus haven't... Nobody farking cares.

My "I'm married and just out to drink beer with my friends so I don't give much of a fark about my appearance shirt" is vastly less offensive looking and I'm sure much less expensive.  Are women really farking guys in those?


Remember those pics of stunned blonde cnuts with Jersey Shore-looking douchebags? Those "women" are farking guys in that shirt. You're not missing anything.

See, the problem with going-out shirts is that you shouldn't have a going-out shirt. A man's wardrobe should be versatile, from totally casual-i.e. beach wear, an old T-shirt for a yard work, etc.-to formal-a tuxedo, or at the very least, a sleek, dark suit-and everything in between. What you wear should be destination-appropriate, and not just a single item that announces that you are, indeed, out on the town. The addition of a collar does not make you "dressed up."

So you shouldn't have a "going out shirt" because instead you should have shirts that are for specific locations and activities?  I get what he's driving at, but that is a terribly constructed paragraph.  Instead he just should have gone with "have shirts and outfits for various activities but please stop wearing these" and put up an image similar to the one markie_farkie posted above.

I don't have a single "going out" shirt.  What I wear depends upon the type of place I'm going to.  If it's the local dive bar, then my "Hopeless romantic seeks filthy whore" tshirt is perfect, but I wouldn't wear that to a nice restaurant or more upscale bar.

Kingly Weevil: So I like button up shirts, and I roll up the sleeves because I live in the desert and it's hot?

And that automatically makes me a bro? Really?


Do you have well-fitted shirts that can be worn with a suit to work or more formal events, paired with a nice sweater when it gets chilly, or go with khakis to look niceish at church; or do you have a couple ill-fitting shirts with a pattern in atrocious colors that have never seen the underside of an iron? Because the latter is what the article is talking about.
